Download Iron Hands Logo Sheet BOLS

- - - - -

I have been noting for a while that GW does a great job of covering the major 1st Founding and select 2nd Founding chapters with their decal sheets. However, there are a number of great looking 2nd and later founding chapters who get a good amount of back-story and have great alternative uniform colors that never have had decals produced for them. In the interest of promoting diversity in the Marine community and encouraging players to branch out beyond the "big 4", I have begun producing logo sheets for some of these other chapters who I think look great and have no GW decal support.

After going over the GW marine decal sheet, I realized the Iron Hands are missing. So here they are along with 2 clan symbols! These lovers of the Machine-God have wonderful background fluff.

I created the original logo in Adobe Illustrator, then made variations of it for size and color (outline and solid color versions). The sheet is designed for printout on Decal printer paper which is easily available online.

These decals give you a bit of choice. I put a thick black edge around the logos and clan symbols, so you can use EITHER the clear or white decal paper for these.

CLEAR PAPER: If you use the clear decals, the decals need to be applied to a light colored surface to be visible at all. The procedure for applying the "outline only" decals is to apply them to a white surface, and wait till they are fully dried. Then using the outlines as a guide, paint in the darker color around the decal. It is odd, but gets the job done.

WHITE PAPER: If you use the white paper, you will have to cut the decals out carefully with the black border being the edge of the decal. Apply them to whatever surface you wish (it can be a dark surface). You may need some minor touch-up painting around the black edge to make sure the transition is smooth.

Size wise, the larger decals towards the top are best used for super heavies/terrain, and move down in size to the large array of Marine Shoulderpad towards the bottom.

In any case, enjoy and I wish you the best in using this set for your forces.

Please feel free to leave comments if there is a special Marine Chapter you would love to collect, but have no GW decal options, and I will see what I can do.
